Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. Public health officials in Pasadena reported 17 new COVID-19 infections and two additional fatalities Tuesday, as Los Angeles County stood on the edge of targets that would potentially allow it to move out of the state’s more restrictive “tier” under the “Blueprint for a Safer Economy.”Tuesday’s figures brought the city’s totals to 10,917 known infections and 316 deaths.Huntington Hospital reported treating 38 COVID-19 patients, with nine of them being treated in intensive care units.The hospital’s daily average of new COVID-19 admissions over the prior week fell to 3.9, which had not been seen since September.With COVID-19 transmission slowing, Los Angeles County moved to the brink of emerging from the most restrictive tier of the state’s business-reopening guidelines on Tuesday, meaning indoor dining and movie theaters could potentially be cleared to reopen by late March.Figures released by the state Tuesday put the county’s adjusted average daily rate of new COVID-19 infections at 7.2 per 100,000 residents. If that number falls to 7 per 100,000 residents and stays at that level for two weeks, the county will be able to move out of the restrictive “purple” tier of the state’s “Blueprint for a Safer Economy,” and into the “red” tier.Moving to the “red” tier would authorize the county to loosen restrictions on businesses — increasing capacity at indoor retailers to 50%, re-starting indoor restaurant dining at 25% of capacity, and reopening movie theaters, also at 25% capacity. Museums and aquariums could be permitted to operate at 25% capacity, and fitness centers could resume indoor activities at10% of capacity.The state updates tier assignments for all 58 counties every Tuesday.To advance to a less-restrictive tier of the state’s blueprint, a county must meet all three metrics required by the state for at least two weeks.To advance to the “red” tier, the county needs a new daily case rate of between 4 and 7 per 100,000 residents, along with an average testing positivity rate of 5% to 8% and a “health equity quartile” — a measurement of a county’s efforts to control the virus in disproportionately impacted communities — of 5.3% to 8%.Los Angeles County’s testing positivity rate is 3.5% and the equity quartile is 5.1%, both good enough to actually qualify the county for the even less-restrictive “orange” tier of the four-level state blueprint. To advance to that tier, the county’s new case rate would have to drop to between 1 and 3.9 per 100,000 residents.The county has been on the verge of exiting the “purple” tier before, meeting all the required metrics last fall. But the county was unable to maintain the metrics for the required two-week period, as case rates began to rise and eventually devolved to the winter surge.Even if the county does move up to the “red” tier, it would still be up to county health officials to decide whether to actually loosen the business restrictions. Counties are permitted to impose more stringent restrictions than the state.“The county’s state-adjusted rate of new cases has been rapidly falling in recent weeks, falling from about 28 per 100,000 residents three weeks ago, then dropping to 20, then to 12.3 last week.On Monday, county Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer highlighted the improving numbers, while still urging residents to keep wearing masks, avoiding gatherings and practicing good hygiene to avoid a reversal of the trend.With more groups of workers becoming eligible for vaccines on Monday, Ferrer again urged people not to make vaccination appointments if they are not in an eligible group. She said health officials “constantly get reports” about people gaming the state’s MyTurn computer system to make appointments regardless of their eligibility.“If you were able to make an appointment but you’re not in one of the eligible groups, please cancel your appointment,” she said. “Don’t take away an appointment from an eligible worker and please don’t come to the vaccination site, because you will need to be turned away.”The county on Tuesday reported another 91 COVID-19 deaths, increasing the countywide death toll since the start of the pandemic to 21,554.Another 1,407 cases were announced Tuesday, lifting the overall total from throughout the pandemic to 1,194,242.At the state level, the California Department of Public Health announced 2,533 new infections and 303 additional fatalities on Tuesday, raising the statewide totals to 3,481,611 cases of the virus and 52,497 deaths.The state’s average positivity rate over the prior week was recorded at 2.3%, while the 14-day average stood at 2.6%, according to CDPH data.As of Tuesday, L.A. County accounted for 34% of California’s total COVID-19 infections and 41% of the state’s fatalities. faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Donald CommunityPCC- COMMUNITYVirtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Make a comment More Cool Stuffcenter_img CITY NEWS SERVICE/STAFF REPORT Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Business News Community News As County Approaches Less Restrictive Tier, Pasadena Sees 2 COVID-19 Deaths, 17 New Infections L.A.

Villanova quarterback Robertson exposes Syracuse’s defensive inefficiencies despite Orange win

first_img Related Stories SNEAKING BY: Fake-field goal TD pass helps Syracuse past Villanova after Hunt’s ejectionQ&A: Villanova linebacker Lucas discusses being punched by HuntGallery: Syracuse takes on Villanova in Carrier Dome to open season Published on August 30, 2014 at 3:09 am Contact Jesse: [email protected] | @dougherty_jesse Villanova head coach Andy Talley thought his team was running out of steam. That’s why, after quarterback John Robertson threw a 9-yard touchdown pass to Gary Underwood to pull the Wildcats within one in the second leg of overtime, Talley kept his offense on the field. Robertson took the snap out of the shotgun and shuffled in place, but the Syracuse front collapsed on the pocket and squandered Talley’s roll of the dice. “It was a QB run,” Robertson said of the game’s last play. “It was a good designed play, it just got blown up.”Talley had good reason to put the ball in his quarterback’s hands. Before Syracuse (1-0) used a fake-field goal pass by punter Riley Dixon to ultimately beat Villanova (0-1), 27-26, in the Carrier Dome on Friday night, Robertson was driving the game toward a different conclusion. The dual-threat quarterback counteracted Syracuse’s blitzes with his legs and did even more damage with his arm, a performance that was only overshadowed by the Wildcats’ overall misfortune. Robertson finished 16-for-27 with 199 yards and a passing touchdown while adding another 115 — the most of any Villanova rusher — on the ground. AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“What we tried to do was we tried to spiral him, but that was hard,” said SU safety Durell Eskridge through some laughter after the game. “He’s a very good quarterback. Coach Talley and his team put together a very good offense, and we tried to go out there and spiral him. “But he was out there making plays and we just had to play football.”That’s what it came down to — just one play that pitted Robertson against a front seven that sniffed it all out. But for most of the game, when Syracuse wasn’t sacking him or stuffing him for the win, Robertson exposed some of the Orange’s defensive weaknesses. Facing a Football Championship Subdivision offensive line, SU’s defensive line had no problem generating pressure. Yet wrapping Robertson up proved a much harder task. When the pocket tightened up, Robertson hightailed it to the edge or danced inside to give himself enough room to unleash one of his 27 throws. A lot of it was improvisation, but some was part of the plan. “When you blitz a team like us with (Robertson’s) running ability, you have to really spy him and know where he is going to be,” Talley said. “They ran past the line and he was going north and south, and he kept us in the game with his feet.”The space that Robertson created for himself in and around the pocket also opened up space downfield. When plays broke down in the backfield, the Syracuse cornerbacks and safeties had a hard time sticking with their assignments. And it didn’t get better as the game went on.Every Robertson scramble opened more holes than the last, before his last attempt fell a bit short. “They’ve got all types of trick plays, different plays that they run that throw you out of your defense, try to mess with your eyes and knock you off your keys,” Eskridge said. “There wasn’t really anything we could do but play the defense that our coach taught us and give 110 percent effort.” Commentscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

What is happening to Tim Hortons

admin no comments

first_imgIn today’s Big Story podcast, Tim Hortons has been the most Canadian coffee shop for so long, it’s not a stretch to call it part of our national identity. They had done such a good job of positioning themselves as the “average Canadian” coffee and donut shop, people who never went there sometimes even felt a little guilty about that decision. But then came the chilli, and the chicken strips, and the artisan-style grilled cheese. Now Tim Hortons is opening their very own innovation café– and it’s unlike any Tim Hortons you’ve ever been to.So what, exactly, is the plan here? Why has the company spent so much time recently focusing on offering things that aren’t their core products? What has become of the Tim Hortons that was mythologized in so many commercials between hockey games?You can subscribe to The Big Story podcast on Apple Podcasts, Google and Spotify.You can also find it at thebigstorypodcast.ca.last_img read more

GOP power play in Michigan must go through pragmatic Snyder

admin no comments

first_imgLANSING, Mich. — Michigan Republicans determined to dilute the authority of newly elected Democrats could see the power play thwarted by a moderate GOP governor, who is not certain to go along with the Legislature like Wisconsin’s more partisan Gov. Scott Walker.Term-limited Rick Snyder is not tipping his hand on whether he will sign the legislation if it is sent to him in the final days of a frantic lame-duck session. In contrast, Walker let it be known early in the Wisconsin process that he was likely to be on board with Republican lawmakers there.Snyder, like Walker, has weakened unions in the industrial Midwest with right-to-work laws, cut taxes and enacted other conservative policies. But he also has a more centrist streak — expanding Medicaid eligibility under the federal health care law and vetoing some GOP-sponsored gun and abortion bills.“Scott Walker is more conservative, more of an insurgent Republican reformer type than Rick Snyder, and he’s got more of an edge just in his personality and his approach to things in general. Rick Snyder has tried to characterize himself as being this kind of above-it-all, almost nonpartisan governor who doesn’t make deals and makes every decision based on logic and common sense and what works,” said Bill Ballenger, a political analyst and former Michigan Republican lawmaker.Snyder infuriated Democrats by signing bills Friday to significantly scale back minimum wage and paid sick leave laws . They began as citizen-initiated ballot initiatives but were adopted by the GOP-led Legislature in a manoeuvr to allow them to be weakened after the election. Snyder’s decision to sign them was not surprising because he has long been in sync with their main backers in the business community.Now Republicans are considering whether to give final approval to a bill that would strip campaign-finance oversight from Democratic Secretary of State-elect Jocelyn Benson. Another bill would let the full Legislature or individual chambers automatically intervene in lawsuits, a power that until now has been reserved for the state attorney general. The move could affect Democratic Attorney General-elect Dana Nessel, who has said she probably will not defend a law allowing faith-based groups to refuse to serve same-sex couples who want to adopt children.An additional measure would make it harder to launch ballot drives , following voter approval of three Democratic-backed proposals last month. A measure very close to Snyder’s desk would hamper the ability of Democratic Gov.-elect Gretchen Whitmer to set environmental and other regulations that are stricter than federal rules.“If I believe it’s in the best public policy interest of our state, I will sign it. If it’s not, I won’t sign it,” Snyder said last week.Democrats in Michigan are warning Snyder that signing the bills could tar his legacy, a repeat of pleas that did not sway Walker. The Wisconsin governor said his legacy will be the record he left behind that includes all but eliminating collective bargaining for public workers and getting rid of the state property tax.While Snyder is more pragmatic, he has not always gotten behind GOP lawmakers’ agenda in his eight-year tenure. He said he does not think about his legacy.There is little doubt that the defining moments of Snyder’s tenure will include the crisis over lead-tainted drinking water in Flint, which was a disaster for his administration, and the economic turnaround of Detroit after it emerged from bankruptcy, for which Snyder has received credit.Republicans contend that the proposals to limit the powers of Democrats and voters have been overblown, while Democrats say they are undemocratic and flout the will of voters who elected them in November.“He talks a good game and then he signs everything that goes in front of him, for the most part,” said Senate Democratic Leader Jim Ananich of Flint, who said he is not “overly hopeful” that Snyder will veto the measures. “If he signs all these right-wing bills, then that’s who you are. That’s what your legacy is. It’s not what you say it’s going to be. It’s what you do.”Whitmer, who is meeting regularly with Snyder during the transition, told Michigan-based radio host Michael Patrick Shield on Friday that she is “hopeful” that Snyder will “go out and show that he’s a statesperson” by protecting the executive branch.The bills have passed one chamber or the other, but it is uncertain if they will win final legislative approval this week or if changes will be made.Tom Shields, a veteran Republican strategist, said Snyder historically has vetoed some bills at year’s end.“I think this year will be no different. He’s going to find some things that he just can’t live with,” he said, before adding: “He’s been pretty close to the vest.”___Follow David Eggert on Twitter at https://twitter.com/DavidEggert00 .

Wheres Model Code of Conduct

admin no comments

first_imgAs the race to Lok Sabha 2019 revs up, all political parties have amped up their campaigns. Every General Election has witnessed grand announcements and promises made by competing political candidates. The Indian election is a huge affair; and over the years, it has been the unrelenting work of the Election Commission of India that has made it possible for a nation as populated and diverse as ours to conduct free and fair polls. This time, however, there are some stark anomalies that seem to be dogging the elections. Also Read – A special kind of bondThe Election Commission brings in the Model Code of Conduct all parties and candidates must strictly adhere to. This time, however, we see the ruling party flouting its norms with alacrity. Take for instance the announcement surrounding Mission Shakti by the Prime Minister. The fact that India now has the capability (we had the prowess since 2012) to conduct anti-satellite tests. The PM first tweeted that there would be a major announcement, after which he addressed the nation and apprised the citizens that India had shot down a satellite in space. We should be proud of such an empowerment of India’s defence and space accomplishments but the timing of the announcement, as expressed by many, seemed to be in clear violation of the Election Commission’s Model Code of Conduct. Also Read – Insider threat managementEven though the Model Code of Conduct came into effect on March 10, we also now hear that the railways are serving tea in cups bearing PM Modi’s campaign cry, ‘Main Bhi Chowkidar’! Is that also not yet another violation of the code? The interestingly-timed biopic based on Modi’s life from ‘chaiwallah to PM’ is also slated to hit the silver screen on April 5. The film titled ‘PM Narendra Modi’ and starring Vivek Oberoi will release at a theatre near you just before the first phase of the seven-poll Lok Sabha elections starting on April 11. In the last four and a half years, we have witnessed the systematic degradation and loss of face of several historic Indian institutions. Reserve Bank of India, Central Bureau of Investigation, Central Information Commission, Central Vigilance Commission, and the Supreme Court (to some extent) have had their actions questioned. Now we have the Election Commission of India under the scanner. Internationally, the Election Commission has won laurels and praise for the extensive work that it undertakes every five years in India. So much so, that the Election Commission has helped other nations to conduct polls. But this year, it is the toughest fight yet for the institution as it will have to prove its impartiality and non-partisan nature. Parties and candidates will over-reach; they will slyly and cunningly want to reach out to the masses with messages that will not adhere to the Model Code of Conduct. Will the Election Commission look the other way? Or will it waste crucial time before cracking down on such violations? Various committees that are looking into the violations of the Model Code of Conduct take up time after the damage is already done. The Lok Sabha polls this time is likely to be the most bitterly fought one in the recent history of the Indian democracy. The onus is now on the Election Commission to uphold its own diktats and ensure that the common man does not lose faith in the democratic process. (The writer is a journalist and media entrepreneur.
